Zelda: Twilight Princess (2006) vs Super Mario Galaxy (2007) which game was more successful?

As many people know Super Mario Galaxy along with The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess were two of the most popular video games to appear on the Wii console back in the 00’s. Since both their respective releases Super Mario Galaxy along with Zelda: Twilight Princess have sold millions and achieved mainstream popularity along with high praises from fans and critics alike. Since its initial release back in ’07 Super Mario Galaxy has reportedly sold over 12 million units worldwide. Ever since The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess was released back in ’06 the game managed to reach over 8.8 million copies in sales and becoming one of the best selling titles within the entire Zelda series. Even though, Super Mario Galaxy sold more than Zelda: Twilight Princess that was something that was expected between the mid to late 00’s since Mario is Nintendo’s main mascot.

To choose game over the other is tough especially since one was a platformer while the other one was action-adventure title. While a HD version Zelda: Twilight Princess was eventually ported to the Wii-U back in 2016 Super Mario Galaxy was not and its uncertain on whether or not Nintendo plans on bringing the game to the Switch console in the future. While Super Mario Galaxy obviously sold more since its release Twilight Princess was definitely more popular.

Should Tsukumo vs Capcom be ported for the Nintendo Switch?

When we think about big fighting titles on the Wii that’s deserved a re-release if some type Tsukumo vs Capcom is one of the many games that comes to mind. Tsukumo vs Capcom was released many years ago in 2008 and is seen by some people as a fight game that is highly underrated. Seeing Tsukumo vs Capcom on the Nintendo Switch would especially be a great alternative if for whatever reason we do not get to see Marvel vs Capcom 3 or Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite on the hybrid console in the future.

Following its release in December 2008 Tsukumo vs Capcom has received positive reviews from critics from different gaming publications. In fact, Tsukumo vs Capcom has won the award of “Best Fighting Game” at the Game Critics Award following the E3 event in 2009. Despite, being criticized for its arcade mode and slower gameplay in comparison to games such as Marvel vs Capcom 2 it was still a pretty solid fighting title that deserves to ported to the Switch console.

Was Super Mario Galaxy a better game than Super Mario 3D World?

Super Mario Galaxy (3)

Both Super Mario Galaxy and Super Mario 3D World were great games.  Super Mario Galaxy was probably one of  the best selling Mario games of the Nintendo Wii.  Since its release back in the Fall of 2007 Super Mario Galaxy had managed to sell over 11 million units worldwide.  Not only was the concept, storyline and gameplay for Super Mario Galaxy was great but it was also very creative.  As a single player game Super Mario Galaxy was very fun to play.

Super Mario 3D World

When it comes down to multiplayer games Super Mario 3D World seemed more fun on the Nintendo Wii-U.  In Super Mario 3D World players had the option to play as multiple characters including Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Toad and Rosalina who was a hidden character.  While Super Mario 3D World may have been a better multiplayer game than Super Mario Galaxy it still paled in comparison in terms of popularity and overall sales. If Super Mario 3D World was featured exclusively on the Nintendo Wii instead of the Wii-U the game could have possibly sold more.  However. Super Mario 3D World still may not have sold nearly as much as Super Mario Galaxy.

Will the Nintendo Switch surpass the overall sales of the Wii-U in a year?

As many of us heard officials from Nintendo had announced that they believe that that they Nintendo Switch will surpass the Wii-U overall sales within a year.  As of right now that seems like something that is very likely especially considering how popular the game console has been since its release back in March 2017.  


Not only has the sales for the Nintendo Switch been very high but the best might be yet to come during the upcoming holidays Black Friday and Christmas.  When it comes to sales the Wii U had only managed to sale over 13 million units worldwide in five years.  As of right now Nintendo expects to do at at least 14 million units by March 2018. With popular games such as Super Mario Odyssey, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Arms and other upcoming titles in 2018. It would be safe to say that selling at least 14 million units by March 2018 is a realistic goal.  However, it could be meetvwith some resistance since Microsoft will be releasing the Xbox One X in earlyNovember of  2017.  

Are the use of gaming cartridges more helpful or harmful to Nintendo?


When it comes down to video games Nintendo became very popular during the 80’s and the 90’s by developing game consoles such as the NES, SNES and the N64 that were cartridge based.  When it comes down to sales Nintendo consoles they are probably the best in the gaming industry when it comes down to producing console based games.


The N64 had managed to sell over 32 million units worldwide since it was first released back in 1996.  Even, though it did not sell quite as much as the Sony PlayStation which hit close to 39 million units worldwide in terms of sales the N64 had still sold more than Dreamcast.

The  Super Nintendo Entertainment System had managed to sell over 49 million units worldwide since its release back in 1990 which is very impressive.   Some people would argue that cartridge based games can produce the same type of visual quality that CD ROM do and they are absolutely right.  Even though, the Nintendo Switch plays cartridge based games the console itself has managed to do great in the gaming market.  While the Wii utilized CD ROMs for their games it was also one of the best selling consoles ever produced by Nintendo and managed to sell over 101 million units worldwide.  

Which Nintendo console had the best control pad?

Since the 80’s Nintendo consoles have evolved greatly in terms of hardware.  This is especially true when it comes down to control pads.  We went from the rectangular NES control pads all the way down to the joy cons for the Nintendo Switch.   In terms of which Nintendo consoles had the best control pad is something that is debatable among retro gamers to this day.  The Super Nintendo control pad had a unique look to it and was fun to play with back in the early 90’s.  In comparison to the NES control pad the SNES controller was a huge improvement because it had more than just two buttons making it easier to play various types of fighting games which were popular back in the early 90’s.

By the time we got to the control pad for the Nintendo 64 some people were impressed by its design while others thought it looked strange.  Either way we got to see so many cool games for the Nintendo 64 such as Mario Kart 64, Star Fox 64, Zelda Ocrana of Time and more.  Not only did the N64 controller have a unique design but the Nintendo 64 console itself had allowed but to four players and had a cool rumble pak feature which added to the realism to whatever game you were playing.    While some people might think that the design for the Nintendo 64 controller was strange others would say that it was probably one of the most innovative designs for a control pad that they have ever seen.  Compared to the SNES and the Gamecube controllers the Nintendo 64 control pad stood out more.

Wii Remote

The Wii controller along with the nunchuck   was also something that people enjoyed back in the 00’s.  The Wii controller and nunchuck increased the amount of interaction that players had in certain video games such as Mario Kart Wii and Zelda: Skyward Sword.  The latest controllers for the Nintendo Switch are also special as well but arguably very expensive.    Nintendo always finds a new way to reinvent themselves when it comes down to gaming products.  Sometimes it’s hard to choose which Nintendo control pad was the overall best.

Would Crash Bandicoot have done well on Nintendo Wii?

The idea of having Crash Bandicoot series on the Nintendo Wii is one that is very interesting considering the fact that platform titles stand out more on that console opposed to the Xbox 360 or the PlayStation 3.  The Crash Bandicoot series was very popular back in the late 90’s and early 00’s but started to go downhill as the 2000’s had progressed.   Some people believe that if Crash Bandicoot games featured on the Nintendo Wii or even Gamecube opposed to Xbox consoles back in the early 00’s they would have stood out more as platform titles.  When the Crash Bandicoot series had started off on the original Sony PlayStation console in the late 90’s everyone loved it similar to Spyro the Dragon mainly because the PS1 was brand new during the time.  But after the release of PlayStation 2 the Crash Bandicoot series had started to decline in popularity.

The only times that any of the Crash Bandicoot games were released for Nintendo based console were for the DS and the Game Boy Advance back in the 00’s.  In theory having a game such as Crash Bandicoot for the Nintendo Wii would have been very exciting.  But since the series started to decline in popularity during the 00’s any Crash Bandicoot game that would have been released for the Nintendo Wii could have easily ended up another regular platform title on the Wii since Super Mario is practically the main mascot for Nintendo.  While titles such as Super Mario Galaxy and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess could  easily overshadow any of the Crash Bandicoot games that could have been on the Nintendo Wii it would probably would have stood out more during an era of gaming where first and third person shooter games were mainstream.
